Following in the footsteps of Mumford & Sons, Kenny Chesney, Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, and Ed Sheeran, who recorded their very own live versions of classic protest songs for the campaign, Usher has given his own take on Marvin Gaye's Mercy, Mercy Me and What's Going On medley to help inspire a new generation of activists.
